You Are Welcome

For those of you despairing of organized religion, here is the Rev. Dr. Phil Snider of Brentwood Christian Church in Springfield, Missouri, whose speech this summer seemingly against adding sexual orientation to a city ordinance banning discrimination has gone viral. Wait for the trick ending. And hear him provide, with quotes from Cornell West and Desmond Tutu, added context. Gives one hope, a little.

“Our faith is 2,000 years old. Our thinking is not.”

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
